How To Care

When planting your Porcupine Grass choose the best location for this plant to thrive. Be sure to plant this grass in growing zones 5 to 9. This grass can grow in full sun to part shade. Porcupine Miscanthus is adaptable to a variety of soil, but prefers well-drained moist soil.

Water deeply once or twice weekly when newly planted (about 3 months) to help the roots grow properly. After the first year this grass is drought tolerant and only rarely needs water. Water thoroughly in extreme heat, especially in the first summer. Fertilize lightly with a slow release, balanced fertilizer in spring for optimal growth. Prune back this grass to 6 inches in late winter or early spring before new growth emerges.

Porcupine grass is extremely hardy as well as pest and disease resistant. It is also deer, rabbit, pollution, and salt tolerant.

The unique colors and upright habit of this grass adds vibrancy to areas that are dull. Try this grass in a container for a stunning look everyone will admire! Porcupine Grass can grow up to 8 feet tall and 5 feet wide so give it some space to thrive at maturity. For a grass hedge, plant every 4 feet. Plant at least 6 feet apart on center for defined individual plants.

LOVE my Miscanthus Porcupine grass

I was so pleased when I saw the Miscanthus Pocupine grass. It exceeded my expectations! Healthy, large plants. I have been looking everywhere for this grass and could not find it. I was so excited to find it on your site in exactly the size I wanted! Thank you for providing fast shipping and healthy plants.
